A work of art, worth going out of your way to experience, Great for kids and young at heart. Hand carved Adirondack animals. Nice playground outside, close to railroad station and Adirondack Scenic Railroad. Very welcoming staff.

We were at the World Snowshoe Championship's and were given a free pass, but most likely would have gone anyways. This was a fun experience with my friends and they had several other families there as well. Defined worth a stop and see and go for a ride.

We went for a free Christmas party for kids and it was amazing. A little crowded given the number of people who attended - but that's no fault of there's. Excellent addition to our tiny mountain town.

Brought the nephews here, they loved it. The individual animals carved with whimsical delight are beautiful. They love looking at each one and finding the lady bugs.

Stopped a few minutes at the Adirondack Carousel while we waited for the other activities that were planned at Saranac Lake. Would not have stopped just for this but was still nice.

Carvings of animals beautiful, the operator came around and told each person about the animal they were riding on. Very nice touch.

We came to visit the carousel in the year before our wedding (2011), while we were touring the area looking for venues. We visited it out of season, and had a lovely time chatting to the guys who maintain and run it. We loved the place so much our parents bought us a 'brick' in the memorial walk to commemorate...

It is worth going to see. Each animal is carved to look like an animal that is native to the region.

Beautiful place. Well worth the visit with kids of all ages. A great complementary attraction to the ADK Scenic RR and to Saranac Lake.
